Make Alien Egg Cake Balls


Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant is getting mixed reviews from critics, but that doesn’t make the franchise any less amazing. People from all over are cashing in on Alien fever, but we have to give special props to baker Rosanna Pansino for crafting a delectable baked good that looks like a facehugger’s home. Her alien egg cake balls are hilarious and tasty.

Pansino is the author of the Nerdy Nummies cookbook, which taps into pop culture to inspire a wide variety of treats, from s’mores styled to look like thick science textbooks to a volcano cake that really erupts. If all of her projects are of the caliber of these alien eggs, we’re buying a copy right now.

If you really want to go the extra mile, you could plant tiny firecrackers inside these babies and have them shoot out little facehuggers, but if someone sues you it wasn’t our idea.
